This panel brings together speakers who will introduce methodological questions in writing architectural history. The topics include the role of visual evidence, legal evidence, narrative structure, and counter-narratives in the history of architecture. These are fundamental concerns for historians who are in the process of Making New History.

Speakers include: Claire Zimmerman, University of Michigan; Michael Osman, UCLA; Daniel Abramson, Boston University; Zeynep Celik Alexander, University of Toronto; Timothy Hyde, MIT

This event is organized by the Aggregate Architectural History Collaborative, a group dedicated to advancing research and education in the history and theory of architecture. We generate, work-shop, present, and publish innovative scholarship from multidisciplinary perspectives. We are particularly interested in work that foregrounds the multiple ways in which one can understand architecture’s relationship to the world.
